From the moment of arrival the parking attendant greeted us with a welcoming smile. Both Hostesses were pleasant and very sweet. We sat at the bar for a few minutes and then escorted to our table of outside seating preference.
The servers worked together and were all very attentive.
Made sure our needs were met. When we would kindly ask for something they immediately brought it out with a smile. It was such a wonderful experience.

Michael was an amazing server. The NY steak can use a little help however...

Loved it!! First time at this restaurant and would love to come back for dinner to see the sunset. A bit far but it was all worth it.

What I can say..? Geoffrey's never fails to impress each of my five senses every time I step foot onto the scene. From the moment you give your keys to the valet, you embark on a journey that feels special every time and makes the drive to Malibu from Los Angeles worth it. Coming around the sunset has been my staple, and it has not disappointed. The service is always top notch, the food is impeccable (The Scallops and Risotto is to die for), and the view really just adds the cherry on top. I try to come once a month and wish I could come more.

Hmm! Worst experience with food I’ve had here. Was one of my go to spots but the food and drinks have taken a dive into the ocean.

Has great potential but came up short. I took my girlfriend for our 4 year anniversary. Unless you’re sat in the lucky three seats that sit closest to the water. You have a view of mostly bushes and then the ocean. Everything is priced way too high for the value. For example; we paid 94.00 for a surf n turf. The lobster was chewy and cold and the filet wasn’t any better than anything you can grill at home yourself. We also got a waygu 12 oz steak that was far from worth the 65$. All and all it was 270$ (before tip) for 4 drinks and those two meals. I felt robbed after. Hope not everyone’s experience is this way.

Our reservation was lost for our anniversary. We were lucky they had a table. The server never checked on us after the food was delivered until we asked for the check. My food was awful, however my husband's meal was delicious. It was a beautiful day and the views were amazing. If my meal was good I would say the pricing is decent. Spending $35 on something I didnt eat was not favorable. I did enjoy the crab cake appetizer and the bloody mary was delicious.

Food was good, but compared to same quality food in other restaurants was over priced, special that a strawberry lemonade for my 12 with two refills was $24 I guess $8 and charge for refills or some celebrity must have picked or squeezed the lemons, to cost $24 over all we enjoyed as it was my wife birthday what ever

Three weeks ahead, I requested a table by the water for a celebration of my mother in laws 81st birthday. We were seated at the worst spot in the house. At 6:15pm. We were told the wait for a good table was an hour. (An exaggeration for sure).
Rose wine was not good. Food otherwise was ok. Overall sort of a bummer. It takes sooooooo long to get to Malibu from our home. What a drag!

Had a reservation and requested a table with ocean view. Got exactly what I wanted. Food was great. Only complaint I had was having to remind my waiter I had asked for a lime for my water on 3 separate occasions.

Because we had a baby, we didn't get one of the best seats. Really, the best seats are for only 2 people. But because we had a baby, we were put far away from the views and placed with other family tables. We weren't even asked if that's where we wanted to seat.

It kinda feels like we paid a lot of money for the presentation and environment but were robbed out of the views.

Food was ok.

Food was horrible.
Sea bass tasted horrible. Really, it was bad. It was worse than buying something from Ralph's.
Lobster salad was horrible too.
Affagto, the coffee was extremely acdidic, they do not know how to make espresso shots.

Blueberry cake was okay, however they charged a lot for it it was my wife's birthday usually all nice restaurant give complementary slice of cake but they don't do that here.

The kept tossing our utensil on the table instead over a napkin, please stop that!

They need to go check out mastro in Malibu and see how they serve there and learn. What they do when it's your birthday. Experience was not good.

Mussel was gross too. I can make better buying from Ralph's too.

Complementary bread and butter was the best out of it the entire meal.

Wonderful night with mostly good efforts on the part of the kitchen and server but the sea bass was undercooked and would have taken too long to correct it (who wants to wait to eat when everybody else has their food?) I ordered another cocktail (cosmopolitan) that I wanted to have with dinner but it took too long so I cancelled the drink, however, it was not cancelled on our bill -- I didn't notice the server did not take it off the bill, but since the drinks are on the expensive side, it does add up. We were celebrating a birthday dinner and the complimentary dessert was quite unimpressive, one small scoop of ice cream with berries -- considering we had appetizers, several round of cocktails and four dinners, this was a disappointment.

We went for our anniversary. Our waitress was friendly but when we asked about wines she said they didn’t have a sommelier and she wasn’t very knowledgeable. The manager seemed nice too. He checked on us a couple of times. My husband asked about an after dinner drink and he made a recommendation saying that he would relay it to our server, which he never did. The food was prepped well but there absolutely no salt. My sea bass was dry and over cooked. The one stand out about the place is the location. Absolutely beautiful! The food and training of staff needs a revamp.
